Kookaburra

You learn something new every day!  Our neighbour Lex, who is a keen nature photographer and also works as a tour guide on the Daintree River wildlife-watching tour-boats, has just called in and taken us just down the road from our driveway to show us a Kookaburra nest.  I had no idea they also nest in termite mounds high up on tree-trunks (unlike the Buff-breasted Paradise Kingfishers which use mounds on the ground).  We waited a while but one of the adult birds stayed in a nearby tree - and just laughed at us as only a Kookaburra can do!
